NEW YORK (Nov. 24, 2018) – Vancouver Canucks forward Antoine Roussel has been fined $5,000, the maximum allowable under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, for biting San Jose Sharks defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic during NHL Game No. 346 in San Jose on Friday, Nov. 23, the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety announced today.

The incident occurred at 19:20 of the third period.

The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.

Vlasic pops ref #70 with a glancing fist and then elbow to the head, all in an effort to place his hand in the ear, throat and face of Roussel. As far as Roussel biting him, isn’t it different if Vlasic puts his fist in his mouth? Should at least wear rubber gloves if you want a grip on someone’s dental work.
